What people are saying about San Sebastián

Thank you Gorkabj for a very special evening, you were an outstanding guide. Our expectations were exceeded with 6 incredible Pintxos stops and a very generous amount of food and wine. The perfect start to our trip in Basque Country learning all about the rich history of the regions and local food. This tour is definitely worth it as well as all the extra advice and information Gorkabj provided for the rest of our trip. Thank you Gorkabj! Andrew, Cate, Martha, Jack and Milli

What an experience! Laura was a fantastic guide. She did not just take us to fantastic pintxo places but also showed us how to order for ourselves. We tried today and was offered food that was not on the menu. Such a wonderful and well rounded experience!

Begonia was lovely and knowledgeable. She shared information in a way that was informative but did not seem rehearsed. The food was delicious. I did find it expensive.

The guide was really informative and so helpful guiding us around the maze of bars. Especially gracious and clear when dealing with the need for gluten free food.

Great guide different foods different drinks great way to gain some local knowledge
